Tianquan (Tim) Lian receives ACS Senior Experimental Award

Dr. Tim (Tianquan) Lian has received the 2022 Senior Experimental Award from the Physical Chemistry Division of the American Chemical Society.

The award recognizes Tim “for pioneering contributions to the in situ time-resolved spectroscopic studies of interfacial structure and charge transfer dynamics of nanomaterials, electrodes and photoelectrodes for energy conversion.”

Tim is William Henry Emerson Professor of Chemistry at Emory University and editor-in-chief of the Journal of Chemical Physics. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Xiamen University, a master’s degree in chemical physics from the Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter Chinese Academy of Sciences, and a doctorate in physics from the University of Pennsylvania. He was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley. He has been a professor at Emory University since 1996. A few notable recognitions include Kavli Frontier of Science fellow, American Physical Society fellow, National Science Foundation CAREER award, and Alfred P. Sloan fellowship.

Tim will present an award talk in Chicago during the Fall ACS meeting.

Congratulations, Tim!
